Welcome to Eden' Garden


Welcome to Eden's Garden! This beautiful bundle becomes available to customers on November 1st. As a demonstrator I was able to order and play in October. It was love at first site! I could hardly wait to start playing. I have created my own designer series paper (on right of card) using 2 stamps from the stamp set and had a great time playing. It also gives you a sense of creativity and accomplishment when you see your paper on a card. The stamp set and die will be carried over to the mini catalogue in January however some of the other products will be exclusive to the November 2nd to Jan 3rd time period only. I will be posting pictures and particulars on Margie's Stampin' Studio facebook page on November 2, release date. Search for me using: @MSStudio54

and it will take you right to my page.

So, lets get playing...

Instructions:

  1. Fold Base 1 creating a left flap. Adhere both gold and designer paper to flap as shown in picture.

  2. Fold Base 2 creating a hinge facing to the back.

  3. Attach inside layer 2 to inside layer 1. Taking base 2 center the hinge flap onto the back of the inside layer and adhere. Adhere inside layer to base 1 of card You have now created your second flap this time on the right of the card.

  4. Make your designer paper using large floral stamp from Eden's Garden and small leaves with dots from the same set. This was done using Evening Evergreen ink for large image and Bumblebee ink for smaller image. I used an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet and then cut out what I wanted leaving extra paper for more cards.

  5. Adhere the paper to the right side flap centered and place the small gold bars on top and bottom as shown in picture.

  6. Stamp out your sentiment on the very vanilla cardstock using Evening Evergreen ink. Punch out using the Everyday Label punch.

  7. Punch out 2 1/4 inch circle in Evening Evergreen. Adhere the sentiment centered onto the circle.

  8. Place 2 dimensionals on the back left side of the circle only. Centering the circle on the left flap, take the right flap and fold closed under the circle to ensure the front lays flat. When this is determined. Remove backing from dimensionals and adhere to left flap. You can now see how the right flap tucks under the circle on the left flap holding the card closed and in place.

  9. Add 2 small and 1 larger round Garden Gems to the label and you are finished.
